about. they care about a farm bill, they care about energy policy. but, ed, mainly day care about people who know how to get things done. it's no different than anything you've been hearing all across the country. the american public is tired of the partisan bickering, they are tired of all of the back and forth. they want solutions to these problems. and that's our job. and i think they thought i'd deliver the solutions. >> okay, solution. tax cuts. would you go for getting rid of the bush tax cuts and taxing the top 2%, just what the president said today. can you go along with that? >> you know, we've been talking a lot, and you know me, i've spent a fair amount of my political life and my public life working in the tax area. my big concern is the difference between earned and unearned income. and i say this every time. i say, the bob cat worker in north dakota pays a higher tax rate than paris hilton, because she doesn't earn her income. she just lets her money make her money. and we need to figure out a way to equalize those rates. maybe not make them identical, but to equalize them.
dialogue to the problems we have in terms of energy and our energy sources. the president, yesterday, said he was going to be talking with people but i guess in terms of moving the ball forward on all things green, all things relating to the environment and our energy policy how optimistic are you that we're going to find a solution to this in the coming years, which is to say the next four? >> you know, in hearing the president speak and reading -- it's i guess confused as an observer and i love listening to you but trying to parse out what it means because what it goes back to for me, in the election, when politicians were separating ow the economy from birth control i was like, no, it's the same. when we hear, we have to see what's economically sound, and when we talk about climate change and energy, didn't i just hear, and don't we think the future is green jobs and what that means? so kind of stepping back, makes me feel frustrated because i feel like isn't that the direction we need to be going in and how do we convince americans that, yeah, you know what, prices at pump have to go u

in the golan heights. it doesn't have the time or energy to invest in syria, but if things spiral out of control, how much pressure does that also put on israel to act? >> i think the israelis have been pretty clear, including in the last few days, that they have absolutely no interest in getting involved in what's going on in syria. there's so many different reasons for that. first of all, it's an intractable conflict. beyond that, none of the actors involved are pro-israelis. the worst thing they can do is get involved in the conflict and give the regime some kinld of political cover saying we're not just fighting against revolutionaries but against israeli spies and the massad. from israel's perspective they have nuch problems dealing with gaza. the last thing that they need is to add to that plate, and what can be gained by getting involved in syria from the israel's perspective? whoever wins in syria from israel's perspective is the enemy. >> that's right. thanks so much. >> thank you very much. >> up next, oh, mitt. why can't you just leave well enough alone? first we heard romn
superior, mr. clapper, head of all the energies services? why did he get confronted with basically a request to resign? how did that happen if this wasn't criminal, what he was doing? >> because he wasn't on active duty, and, of course, in the military under the uniform code of military justice, marital infidelity is a criminal offense. not so in -- >> even for retirees i understand. >> well, not if you're retired. you're no longer under the code of military justice. >> well, i just got a different reading on that. i just got a different reading on that ten minutes ago but maybe you're right. >> so the lawyers can fight over this, chris. you're right. but the larger point is that the shame that he feels he's brought upon himself and his service trumps any legal niceties, and he i'm sure felt that he had to resign because he'd really violated the trust that everyone in the military had in him, even though he was retired. don't forget that he was -- go ahead, chris, i'm listening. >> the other general allen who is now leading our services is a more live question. how does he explain
